About us

We have one mission: to make selling and installing solar as seamless as possible. An intelligent project management app and solar’s largest installer network, the Quativa platform is unmatched at helping sellers grow. We’re confident that once you try Quativa, you won’t turn back.

Our story

In 2017, Quativa’s co-founder had an epiphany. At his own bachelor party on a houseboat on Lake Powell, Dallen Gietz came up with a solution to the solar industry’s biggest problem. He grabbed a notepad, sketched it out, and pitched the business idea to his friends and to the smartest person he knew, David Makharadze. Then and there Dallen and David set out to accomplish that vision of a utopian solar experience and Quativa began.

Informed by years of experience in the solar industry, Gietz and his co-founders set out to make the solar sales and installation process smooth and scalable. Shortly after testing and launch, Quativa rocketed. Thanks to a round of series A capital, Quativa scaled from 4 to 25 markets in 8 months, creating over 1000 solar jobs each month.

Quativa now has the largest installation network in the country. What’s more, Quativa’s platform sets the highest standard for efficiency, install quality, and customer satisfaction. With our eye on the future, we’ll keep setting the bar higher.

We are Quativa.
